Hello,

I have a table in MS SQL 2005 with a column called "itemnumbers". I would like to add to each item number in that column 00 so that it takes an item number like 12345 and makes it 0012345. Can someone let me know what SQL syntax I should use for this? I am just getting started with MS SQL and not sure how to do this. I appreciate your time in advance.

Thank you,
conquerdev

when you are doing the insert into the table append 00 to that field value and do the insert.
